Prunus avium 'BlackYork®'
Homeowner Growing and Maintenance Tips

BlackYork® will do best in areas that do not have frequent rains during harvest season, as it is moderately susceptible to cracking. It has a good tolerance to bacterial canker. Protect from birds when ripening. The tree is healthy and sturdy. BlackYork® is a mid-season bloomer, like Bing, and will pollinate with most varieties except Royal Anne, Napoleon, or Emperor Francis.
